Nice Clean Material

Wednesday Advertising Day.

Here's a nice set of washpowder ads, that baffle me. Usually these ads were assigned to one illustrator, but here we have a very eclectic mix. Some of them have clearly been drawn by Jack Betts. Others look as if they might be by Elmer Wexler, but unfortunately I have only one signed sample of his work. The last one here, looks as if it could have been done by one of those illustrators, whoc usually work in watercolors from models and now try their hand at a line drawing, such as the ones Gunnar Peterson did. The bottom strips I forgot to clip are by someone like Ken Bald, but again my knowledge of artists doing this sort of stuff in the forties falls short.
